Joe Krabbenhoft:

On the physicality of the game: "Evan Turner does a lot of different things—he goes in the post, he can ying-yang out on the perimeter, but these guys were battling B.J. Mullens and Dallas Lauderdale, and jeez, those are some big boys. They did a great job. They forced them into tough shots when they put the ball on the floor. It was a very physical game and that is how we like to play, getting back to that old-school Wisconsin basketball. We enjoy that."

On his 3-point shot: "That was a good shot. The shot clock was down so I had to put it up and made sure the guys were down there in rebounding position so it was not a bad shot. Jordan (Taylor) did a great job at driving down the lane and getting a couple guys to go with him, because I am sure they were not too worried about me out there, so I just put it up there and it went down. It felt really good when it left my hand. I finally got some arc on my shot and I was really happy, but Jordan did all the work."

Marcus Landry:

On his rebounding: "It felt good, with a rebounding team like that, with their size and things like that. But we were very active on the glass today and it paid off for us. It gave us a second chance to score, so it really worked out in our favor today."

Jon Leuer:

On his shot to break the five-minute shotless streak: "To be honest, I was pivoting and I saw that it was wide open so I decided to shoot and it went in. I thought earlier in the game when we were moving the ball against the zone we were not executing how we normally do. Toward the end, we started running some good action and guys were moving without the ball and we were moving the ball really well and we got some open shots. That is what it came down to."
